The Regency style is characterized mainly by relaxing the lines and decorations, which always meets a perfect symmetry. The transition to asymmetry led to the triumph of Rocaille style. The components of the Louis XV style (imagination, fantasy, movement) are contained in the Regency style. Content, but not released. Some models of clocks show already that tendency. Table or wall clocks, that style offers, without constraint, all possibilities of fantasies, asymmetry and movement. These clocks take inspiration from decorators, who propagate the forms and decorations in fashion, as Oppenord Gilles-Marie (1672-1742), considered as one of the most influential leader of the Regence style.
